Mango Guacamole...sweet mangoes add a delicious depth of flavor to this classic snack!

I seriously need to learn some Mango cutting skills. We love the fruit in our house, but no matter the you tube video I watch, I can’t seem to cut a mango and get the maximum amount of fruit. If anyone has some tips and tricks feel free to leave me a comment below. I need help.

Since I failed at cutting my own mangoes at home, I turned to Costco to help a girl out. And, because it’s Costco, I have to buy several pounds of sliced and peeled mangoes. Which we normally can devour in one sitting, because there is no work in prepping them.

However, for some reason, I was moving things around in the fridge and found a package of mangoes all ready to be used. I also happened to have a few avocados ripe and ready for eating. My mind immediately went to guacamole.

A bowl of guacamole in our house is probably like a bowl of chocolate in others. It will be eaten in MINUTES. The sweet mangoes combined with the avocado, salt and lime is such a great combo.

With Cinco de Mayo coming up soon, I think you need to put this recipe aside just for the occasion. Speaking of which, if you haven’t already followed me, I’ve got a whole Pinterest Board for CINCO DE MAYO recipes. From dinner to dessert, drinks and appetizers. You’re going to find something to inspire you….I promise!

Check back later this week, I’ve got a great dinner recipe and this Mango Guacamole is the perfect side. Yes, guacamole can be a side dish. Don’t judge.

I pretty much love adding mango to anything! Usually, I have mango salsa or guacamole with tortilla chips, but I love the combination of the two!

I love this combo. I am a bit lacking in my mango cutting skills also. I always find myself wanting to chew on the pit so nothing goes to waste.. (sorry, TMI probably.)

I gave up trying to cut a mango, after watching countless videos on YouTube too! I too, just buy the pre-cut mango at Sam’s! So much easier!

We have a mango tree in our yard so I cut up quite a few mangos every year. The best method for me is to cut a small slice off the stem end so that the mango will have a flat surface and can stand upright on a cutting board. Holding the mango at the top, use a chefs knife to slice the skin off from the top to the bottom, turning the mango but keeping it upright. Once it is peeled, cut from the top down on one side close to the flat side of the pit and then the other side close to the pit. You will have 2 large slices. Sometimes you can also get a small sliver off the ends of the pit as well. I think this method yields the most fruit and it’s relatively easy once you cut a few.

The salsa sounds like heaven. I cant wait to add the mango to my next batch……I find that the best way to cut a mango is to lay it flat in your hand cut from the top to the bottom as close to the seed you can by feeling the seed with your knife all the way down just like you filet a fish. do the other side the same way. Then take each half one at a time , lay the shin side in the palm of your hand and with a small pairing knife slice down to your palm without going through the skin. You can feel the pressure from the tip of the knife. Make rows of cuts as close as you need your cubes of mango to be. Then cut lines going across…like a checker board. Then flip it inside out like a porcupine. Then just trim it all out of the skin. There might be a little left around the seed but you can trim that with your knife or kitchen scissors. Try it…Its easy and you get better the more you do it
